Pretty poor in all areas but just watchable
18 January 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Royce is part of a secret group within the US government that is disbanded. The members of the group turn to crime and swear revenge on the senator that disbanded the group, however Royce chooses not to join them but instead sets out to find their plan and stop them.

I taped this as it was described as a spoof, however it was immediately apparent that I had been sold a dud! The film isn't really funny at any point, even if it has a sort of lackadaisical relaxed humour to it that makes it have the air of a comedy if not the laughs. Looking at the plot and delivery I can see that it never wanted to be a spoof, more an amiable action movie on a tvm budget. The scenes are mostly watchable despite the fact that the low production values of the film show in almost every regard. The script is clichéd and the action rather stilted and A-Team-like, but it is still watchable.

The main reason the film is just about watchable is that Belushi is quite amiable in the lead role. His character is dumb and I think he knows it - however he doesn't take it too seriously and is enjoyable despite everything else. Ferrer is good as the main villain, doing essentially what he normally does in second-rate films. Boyle has a minor, insignificant role and doesn't make much difference. Jefferson is quite cute but is just one big `female sidekick' stereotype.

Overall this is a pretty poor film that will annoy most of those who tune it to watch it. It must be said that a film who's main selling point is James Belushi is in real trouble and that is the case here. It's watchable if you are really looking for something that can be on in the background while you do chores in another room but as entertainment for 90 minutes? Forget about it!
